Nikki gave birth to their non-identical sons via caesarean section in June. Prior to the twins, the couple experienced six miscarriages and welcomed their first child, Anastasia, in 2021.
Nikki spoke exclusively to the MailOnline about the overwhelming joy of holding her sons for the first time after a decade of struggling to conceive. She expressed her gratitude and said, “I am complete now. I have my family and I never need to revisit that dark place again.” The couple had been told by doctors that their boys had just a 1% chance of survival when Nikki’s waters broke unexpectedly at 18 weeks into the pregnancy.
At 36 weeks, she underwent a C-section due to a drop in water levels in Phoenix’s amniotic sac. Nikki admitted to being terrified of the operation but felt an immense relief when her boys were safely delivered. She shared, “I thought if I die here and have brought them into this world, I’ve done my job… I’m so proud of myself. It is such a relief for me.”
Nikki also mentioned Alex’s nervousness and overwhelming joy when he saw his boys for the first time. The couple chose meaningful names for their sons. Phoenix Bobby represents strength, resilience, and determination, while Hunter George is named after Nikki’s grandfather and great uncle.
Currently, both boys are doing well, although they are receiving antibiotics as a precaution and undergoing blood tests. Nikki is looking forward to returning home to her daughter and Alex, ready to embrace this exciting new chapter of their lives. She expressed her gratitude for finally achieving her dream of becoming a mother, saying, “Being a mom is all I’ve ever, ever wanted in life. Here I am. It’s taken time.”
